Many efforts take a village. We would also like to acknowledge the following people who were instrumental in helping develop the product but requested to be anonymous. Thank you Jeff, Cathie, Matt, David, Malcolm, Royce, John and Steve. Without your encouragement and listening to my hours of droning and carrying on, SHADE-MAX may have been left on the drawing board. I greatly appreciated your input and advice.
I also have a special thanks to our heavenly technical writer "Ed" and an amazing cheerleader "Reggie".
Without his expert advice and comments, the technical report would be unreadable. Without her continual encouragement and "Kewel" during the trade shows, this effort may have stopped. Rest In Peace my friends!
